“一石二鳥Kill two birds with one stone”
Below are reports from our students:
This is my second time to participate in a Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony. But the main difference this time is that I was the narrator instead of tea brewer. When I was a tea brew last time, I was busy and focused on memorizing the steps of Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony and the tea making process. So honestly I did not pay much attention to the important spirits and values about Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony.

Wu Wo Tea Ceremony
The first time I head of Wu Wo Tea Ceremony was at a class I was attending in Lu Yu Tea School. The straight translation of “Wu Wo” literally means “No Me” in Chinese. Which pretty much sums up what the ceremony about.
Wu Wo tea ceremony is a ceremony where every attendee can meet and executed according to a prepared “public announcement” with his/her own tea set and tea brewing method no matter where you are from.
The goal of ceremony is to share tea knowledge and culture internationally hence the meaning of “No Me” emerges. It is a quite ceremony where everyone is seated accordingly and begin their brewing at same time so all attendees can concentrate on what they doing and brew the best tasting tea to share with everyone no matter you are just an onlooker or the one doing the brewing.
